The Conjuring 3‘s creepy logo has been unveiled by director Michael Chaves.
The Conjuring blew the doors off the box office when it premiered in 2013 and unexpectedly started a franchise in the style of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Conjuring earned one sequel in 2016 and several spin-offs, including Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, The Nun, The Curse of La Llorona, and this summer’s Annabelle Comes Home. Next year, The Curse of La Llorona director Michael Chaves will return to the franchise next year with The Conjuring 3.
Michael Chaves will be taking over the director mantle from Aquaman director James Wan, who also helmed the first two Conjuring films. The Conjuring 3 arrives in theaters next Fall and in anticipation of the horror threequel, director Michael Chaves has shared the film’s logo via his website. Check out the awesome new logo for Michael Chaves’ The Conjuring 3 below.
The Conjuring 3‘s Fall release date makes it the first film in the trilogy not open in summer. September may seem like an odd time to release a huge horror film but 2017s It saw incredible success in that time frame time two years ago, so Michael Chaves’ trilogy-ender is in good company.

Instead, The Conjuring 3 will be written by David Leslie Johnson, who helped co-write The Conjuring 2 with James Wan and the Hayes brothers.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
